In my opinion the best chippy in the bay. Cod is superb. Never had a bad dinner from here. Always busy which ensures food is always fresh.

Very surprised to see the good reviews for this establishment. Cod and chips to take away were the worst my wife and I have ever had. The fish in one of the two servings was served in pieces! Chewy tasteless fish and greasy chips. Service...More
